After waiting endlessly for KORE CAI, I finally got it today. As soon as I unpacked the box I started working on CAI installation. First I took out all stock intake parts and the battery. Next I changed a battery tray then I began to put KORE CAI. I thought that it would be an easy job. But I wasted my time trying to figure out how to put new battery tray because it had holes in a wrong location (just few centimeters away from the hole but this made me impossible to put screw). Anyway after solving the battery tray problem, I put temperature sensor into my new CAI then started working from top. After that I began to cut those fender wall plastics. I did not have proper tools to cut the plastic so I just cut it with scissors (it was really hard ~~). After I made a hole in the fender wall I installed the last piece and put that huge air filter on it. It took me approximately one and half hour for the installation.
Anyway after the installation, I test drove my car for 10 minutes. As everyone who installed CAI mentioned, CAI does really improve intake sound produced by Tiburon. I noticed more powerful sound coming from my intake. As for the HP gain I can't really tell you from the 10 minutes driving, but it seems like that my car reponds better to my gas pedal pushing (I don't know how to explain this in a technical term <img src=/images/forums/snitz/disapprove.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>).
I need to drive more before I judge anything, but my first impression is good so far :)

Here are 3 pics. By the way did I put AEM bypass in a right place?

Thanx guys ^^

biomknx, my parents also dislike me modifying my car. And since I am a college student and never worked, I buy all those aftermarket products with my parents' credit card <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> Although they dislike me modifying my car, they do not say anything serious about it (that's something good). In fact, my mom helps me to install those aftermarket products.

Anyway, once I go to the real world and start making money, I'll buy new Tiburon (probably 2006 model) and modify it with everything from turbo to body kit. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/cool.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
